When Imaam Hussain prepared to leave Madina in the month of Rajab 60 A.H. Qasim mother Umme-e-Farwa asked Imaam Hussain to take her and Qasim with him. Imaam Hussain agreed. Hazrat Qasim, although only 13 years old, had, like his cousins Aun and Muhammad, learnt fencing from Hazrat Abbas and Hazrat Ali Akber. Hazrat Abbas was very fond of Hazrat Qasim.

On the night before Ashura when Imaam Hussain was passing by Umm-e-Farwa’s tent he heard Qasim say to his mother, “Mother, tomorrow Uncle Abbas, Ali Akber and I will defend Imaam Hussain.

Jab Imam Aenge - Sibte Jafar Sahab.

Haal e gham sunaenge jab Imam aayenge
zakhm Dil dikhaenge Jab Imam Ayenge
Mehfil e jamaaenge Jab Imam Ayenge
Bamodar sajaenge Jab Imam Ayenge
Jashn Hum manaenge Jab Imam Ayenge

Zakhm hai abhi taaza maqqa aur madeena ke
Sham o kufa karbobala hum bhula nahi sakte
Az sakheefa taai dam ghair se nahi pohche
Jitne dukh uthae hai humne kalma goyo se
Ek ek chukaenge.....x2
Jab Imam Ayenge

Shaq hai jinko allah ke adl aur adaalat par
Mansab e nubuwat par saiyada ki ismat par
Murtuza ki ahmed se mukhtasir niyabat par
Jinko shaq hai bara par baarwey ki ghaibat par
Sab hi maar khaenge....x2
Jab Imam Ayenge

Naam par sahaba ke kaam kafiro jaise
Naam par sahaba ke kaam fasiqo jaise
Naam par sahaba ke kaam munkiro jaise
Naam par sahaba ke kaam mushriqo jaise
Sab hi muh churaenge...x2
Jab Imam Aenge

Dawa e mohabbat jo subho shaam karte hai
Unke dushman o se bhi raao rasm rakhte hai
Uns bhi nahi dete gheebatei bhi …

I have been lucky to translate pain Ghame Hussain into Images ...I have in all humility since I joined Flickr in 2007 , shot posted blogged 50000 images or more as documentary of Shiasm.. because of the graphic nature of my images , you have to be a Flickr member to see them, my images as photo journalism , of historical essence value has been restricted from public view ...

a city of
dreams
within
a dream
but for
some
tomorrow
will be the
end it
seems
homes
demolished
because
the system
protects
crooked
builders
bureaucrats
political
patronage
the soul
screams
good bye
you tried
your level
best ...
tomorrow
they will
demolish
hope
break
the walls
the beams
campa cola
a tragic story
of grit determination
fighting to live
honor redeem
but the battle
loses steam
children look
up at the
parents
lost illusions
lost esteem
also for a
single moment
think of the
slum dwellers
their homes
shanties
uprooted
bulldozed
to build
towers
condominiums
malls plazas
by every
regime
